The Philippine Cultural Foundation, Inc. presents “Arte”, an exhibit of various art forms by Filipino-American artists in the Tampa Bay Area at the Bayanihan Arts and Events Center on Sunday, December 9, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM. This exhibit will encompass various fields of art including painting, jewelry design, photography, fashion design, doll-making, flower-arranging and food art.
As envisioned by the project chairman, PCFI board member Olive Santiano, art as a basic human expression is expressed in almost every activity that man does. The Tampa Bay Area is home to thousands of Filipino-Americans, with some who make a living in the arts, music and other expressive crafts. Santiano states that it is about time to give these artists a special recognition to have their art displayed at the Arts Center. PCFI board member, Amy Estrada, co-chairs this project.
The Bayanihan Arts and Events Center is located at 14301 Nine Eagles Drive, Tampa, FL 33626. Since its public opening in 2001, the Center has been venue for various art and cultural events by Filipinos, Americans, Filipino-Americans and other nationalities.
